Import from OneNotes


we have big db "step-by-step" help in OneNote with many pictures. We will all this helps give to Confluence. I would like ask you: what are the best practise steps? Now we go picture after picture and make copy-paste...Its very slow and very laborious.

Thank you for answZdenek

I'd suggest you try to export that information into a format that Confluence can import.

The best candidate could be using Word documents...

thank you for help. Unfortunately this doesn´t work (same thing). Zdenek

You've got two problems here - OneNote does not have a useful export and Confluence does not have a batch import.  You can get around the second one with some scripting, pushing data in over REST or using things like the Confluence CLI add-on, but you need to export the data into a format that can support those.

Thumbs up for this approach. I'm in the process of building out a command line utility that uses the Microsoft Office Interop for OneNote to pipe documentation into Confluence over the REST API. The GetContent methods of that interop output XML strings which look very parseable in the cherry picked cases I've created thus far.

Confluence has great docs on using the REST API:

Using the OneNote Interop is a bit harder to find, but I found this answer on stackoverflow was enough to get me going:

Hi Zdenek,

We have released an add-on which can import notes from Microsoft OneNote to Confluence as pages: Microsoft OneNote Import for Confluence

Please give it a try from Marketplace here and let us know if you have any feedback.

We were trying this add-on but we can't seem to make it work. Only the admin can see the list of notes from the import one note list. 


is there supposed to be a setting to assign which users has access to the feature?

Hi, I have tried the add-on but i’m getting a redirect error once its authenticated to Office365. Is there a fix for this?

The addon installed perfectly but it fails during the authorize process.
